Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Speaking of jail…

Imagine if your dad went to prison when you were in kindergarten. You visit him every Tuesday afternoon for six years and wait for him to come home to your family. Then he gets released a year earlier than you expected and doesn’t come home. Poof. You don’t hear from him again.

 

I’d probably have trouble focusing in school too.

    This is really touching and sad. It’s kind of stunning to realize sometimes there are situations where you’re really powerless to get what you want. I guess you eventually figure out some new things to want and start filling the void.
